Claire of the Sea LightClaire of the Sea Light by Edwidge Danticat

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A beautifully written, often heartbreaking book about life in a poor fishing village in Haiti. The novel is told as a series of stories that involve not just Claire and her family, but the entire community, drawing the reader into a world of both beauty and tragedy. It is richly observed and told almost like a fable, adding to the feeling of community and beauty. It is my first experience reading Danticat (who came highly recommended to me) and I will seek out more.
